Fort Myers Criminal Defense Lawyer
Facing Criminal Charges in Fort Myers?
When facing criminal charges, it is crucial that you take fast action and get a Ft. Myers criminal lawyer initiating the defense of your case. Any criminal charge is a serious matter; your permanent criminal record will show your conviction and can affect your employment, ability to find housing and other matters when a background check is done on you. In serious offenses, such as felony charges of any type, if convicted you will be facing a prison sentence, either in state or federal prison, with a future that is forever altered by a felony conviction.
You need to work quickly and exercise your right to an attorney. Involve a criminal defense attorney who can get to work immediately to protect your liberty and constitutional rights. No matter what crime you have been accused of committing, you have the right to legal counsel. Choosing to take advantage of that right may mean the difference between a jail cell and freedom.
Experienced and Aggressive Defense Team - Ready to Help You!
The legal team at Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law is prepared to review your case and advise you as to the strategy that can be used to fight for your freedom. The legal team at the firm is a creative, insightful, energetic and talented group that is recognized for their high quality and aggressive defense tactics for their clients, even in the most difficult of cases. We provide personal legal representation to clients charged with virtually any felony or misdemeanor offense in state, federal or
juvenile court, and we handle
traffic tickets for drivers throughout the area. If you have been charged with a
criminal traffic offense, we understand the seriousness of your situation and how to handle it. There is a definite distinction between common motor vehicle violations and a serious criminal traffic offense like fleeing a police officer or demonstrating a wanton disregard for the safety of persons and property. A list of criminal traffic offenses can be found under the Florida statutes and the state assigns penalties based on the complete set of circumstances surrounding the event, as well as the amount of damage or bodily harm caused and the offender's previous records.
Providing a comprehensive defense strategy is important in the face of any criminal charge, whether it involves petty theft,
murder, or anything in between. Our criminal defense team can take on all types of violent crimes (including
assault and battery,
manslaughter) and theft crimes (such as
grand theft and petty theft). Our firm also handles
sex crimes and works hard to debunk the strong prejudgments against those who are arrested for a suspected sex crime. We have experience in
rape cases, and in helping our clients' voices be heard. Cases involving
prostitution include many elements and it is critical that you have the advice and support of a Fort Myers criminal defense lawyer. Our legal team of criminal defense lawyers also handles
child pornography cases. We have the resources to take on cases involving
drug crimes, from
possession to trafficking and complex financial crimes related to
money laundering. We recognize that no two defendants and no two cases are the same and therefore strive to develop legal strategies tailored to address the nuances of a particular charge and our client's unique needs. In addition to handling criminal charges and pre-file investigations for our clients, we also offer post-conviction relief in the form of
expungement to clear your criminal record and help you face a brighter future.
Our legal team has outstanding qualifications to assist clients who are facing serious criminal charges. Attorney Jose Calvo, a former prosecutor, and attorney Katheryn Calvo, a board certified criminal trial expert, are proud of their impressive record in defending clients facing criminal charges from DUI through sex crimes and murder. Any criminal accusation demands strong legal representation and we take on cases firmly committed to fighting for the defense of our client. Cases involving young offenders are also of interest to our legal team, as protecting their future is so important not only to the accused and their family, but to our community. In addition, we are also able to provide
deportation defense for immigrants who have been charged with a crime or who have gotten caught up in the legal system.
